That alone has raised my MPG's a little, as well as a drop in K&N. I routinely average 25 on the hwy now. I have hit 30 a couple times, shockingly , as that 4.0 likes to get rather thirsty at times!
Ok, it sounds like you have a pretty consistent commute. The good part is that over time, you will be able to predict your MPG and figure out how much "mod A" helps (or hurts). 2WD + 6 Speed manual is great. While you are optimizing your driving skills, researching all the aero-mod options sounds like the way to go.
